Oxymorphone Suppository is indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain.

Oxymorphone Injection is indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain. It is also indicated for preoperative medication, for support of anesthesia, for obstetrical analgesia, and for relief of anxiety in patients with dyspnea associated with pulmonary edema secondary to acute left ventricular dysfunction.

Oxymorphone Injection is available in two concentrations, 1 mg/mL, 1 mL ampul and 1.5 mg/mL, 10 mL vial of oxymorphone hydrochloride.

The Oxymorphone Rectal Suppository is available in a concentration of 5 mg of oxymorphone hydrochloride.

Morphine Sulfate capsules are a modified-release formulation of morphine sulfate intended for once daily administration indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain requiring continuous, around-the-clock opioid therapy for an extended period of time.

Morphine Sulfate is NOT intended for use as a prn analgesic.

The safety and efficacy of using morphine sulfate in the postoperative setting has not been evaluated. Morphine sulfate is not indicated for postoperative use.

Morphine sulfate extended-release capsules 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, and 120 mg contain both immediate release and extended release beads of morphine sulfate for once daily oral administration.

Both meds are different from one another, please seek info from a doc/pharmacist, take care.

Oxymorphone is also known in pill form as Opana. It is available in both short acting and a sustained release long acting preparation. Mg for mg, Opana is stronger than morphine.

10mg oxymorphone is equal to 30mg morphine.
